Welcome to #GolfChat! Who’s joining us and how was your past week of golf?  #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: It was asked when pro golf came back, what would happen if the leader test positive for covid and we found out this past weekend when Jon Rham, leading by 6 after Saturday, was WD after a positive test. Live TV captured the moment tour officials told Rham, was it handled the right way or would could have been done different? #GolfChat

Q2: U.S. Women’s Open had lots of story lines, a historic venue, notable play by 3 young amateurs, a popular leader and 2 players pursuing going into the back 9 then a collapse and a play off with the youngest winner ever. Was this the drama and story lines you expected from a US Open, or was this special? #GolfChat

Q3: This past week @Weahterhack found himself playing well, +1 after 10 holes, but nerves kicked in and he finished +5 for the round. How do you handle being outside your comfort zone when amid a “special” round? Is it expectations or looking ahead, we all know “One shot at a time”, but does that work? #GolfChat

Q4: @ArtieCubed tweeted about a driving range customer loading up 2 buckets of balls into their trunk.  What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever seen on the driving range? Once saw a significant other show up, grab a club, and start swinging it at a guy. #GolfChat

Q5: @JDMoran_MT played recently at a course with back to back par 3’s and asked how common are they as well as back to back par 5’s? While back to back par 5’s seem to be more common, have you played back to back par 3’s and what do you think of them? #GolfChat

Q6: What’s your week in golf look like and what are you excited about? #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: LPGA pro Shanshan Feng conceded her consolation match in this past week’s Match Play on Sunday at in Las Vegas, citing a need to rest for next week’s U.S. Women’s Open after finishing six rounds in five days and temps in the mid to high 90’s. Do you think Feng was justified in conceding given how tired the 2 finalists said they were after their match, or should she have played on?  #GolfChat

Q2: Justin Thomas cut a check out of his own pocket and handed it to Monday qualifier Mike Visacki this week to continue to pursue his golf career. Some comments were positive, some not. Do you think that it was ok for Thomas to single out 1 mini-tour player to support? #GolfChat
